Human remains found in a remote part of the US are believed to be of missing actor Charles Levin.
Levin played a variety of roles on television comedies such as Seinfeld, Golden Girls and Night Court.

On Friday, search and rescue crews narrowed down a search area based on an emergency mobile phone ping.
A resident located Levin's car in a remote and almost impassable road on the weekend.
Inside the car, troopers found the remains of Levin's dog.
Crews searching steep and rugged terrain then found the human remains. There is a "high probability" the remains are those of Levin, The Grants Pass Department of Public Safety said.
The medical examiner will make the final identification.
Levin's TV credits also include Alice, Doogie Howser, M.D.
He also appeared in movies including The Golden Child, Annie Hall and This is Spinal Tap.
